It is an open invitation to be present at what will be the eighth edition of the tournament as a member of the ITTF World Tour; the event was first stage in 2010 in Budaors, before two years later, Budapest being the home. Once again in 2012, the capital city was the destination, prior to 2014 when Szombathely played host; organized every year since 2015, Budapest has always been the destination.
All potential candidates must meet all relevant costs and fees and are required to organize their own transport to the region as well as travel and medical insurance; the local airport is Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport (IATA Code : BUD) situated some 10 miles from the city centre.
